Tips for the Perfect Potato Pancake
One is the key features in this recipe is that you really need potato pancakes that are crispy and hold together well. To ensure this, follow these tips (or visit the gluten free potato pancakes recipe):
- Make sure to remove the excess liquid. See recipes for details.
- When you add additional oil for frying, allow it to rise to temperature for a minute before adding more pancakes.
- Don’t allow pancakes to sit out too long – best served fresh!
- Don’t crowd the pancakes – 3 at a time is more than enough.
- Best served thin?! Press down with a spatula to thin the pancakes, thicker ones will not fry as well.
Gluten free? Paleo? Keto? Simply want a lower carb option? Select your variation of choice for these hash brown sandwiches! While the traditional potato is my preference as it works best tastes best, and holds together best, it is not the choice highest in nutritional value.
Here are the options you have:
- Keto OR low carb – use the cauliflower rice substitute in the recipe below or replace shredded potatoes with equal part shredded zucchini (about 8 medium / 8 cups).
- Paleo – use either of the keto substitutes above or shredded sweet potato (about 8 medium / 8 cups).
- Gluten free – any of the options – this recipe is naturally gluten-free.
Hash Brown Sandwiches – the Easiest Healthy Brunch Recipe
Let’s get on to the recipe! While it’s slightly labor intensive (I linked all the products I used below that make it a lot more convenient), this recipe is super simple. It really takes all the work out of entertaining or making brunch, because other recipes require sides. These hash brown sandwiches are the FULL meal all on their own – the bacon, the eggs, the avocado, etc. are already included!
The best options for serving them for a healthy brunch (for entertaining) are to serve with a simple side of fruit and a healthy cocktail. The best options for an everyday breakfast are to serve with a side of fruit, a glass of water, and some homemade iced tea!
These hash brown sandwiches really have EVERYTHING you love about brunch; no matter what way you need to eat for your healthy & lifestyle.
Here’s to having brunch back and regaining our sparkle together,
Hash Brown Sandwiches
(Hash Brown Patties)
- 8 medium potatoes *Substitution options: 8 medium / 8 cups of zucchini or sweet potatoes. Or riced cauliflower sautéed until tender (I buy mine frozen from Trader Joe’s; (3) – 12-ounce packages/9 cups)
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons
- 1 teaspoon
- 1 dash pepper
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 avocadoes, sliced
- 1 pound natural bacon, baked in oven at 400°F for 25 minutes or until crispy, pat dry with paper towels
- 8 organic eggs, pan-fried, over-easy
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon
- 4 tablespoons, minced fresh chives
(Hash Brown Patties)
- Wash, peel, then use your
food processor’s shredding attachment to quickly shred potatoes. Set potato aside for 10 minutes. Afterwards, squeeze all the liquid out. It may help to wrap in a kitchen towel (thin or tea towel) and squeeze. For keto, allow your cauliflower to cool for ten minutes, then squeeze out extra liquid, and proceed as directed. *Removing extra moisture really is a key step to getting crispy pancakes
- Mix in eggs, flaxseed flour, sea salt, pepper, and baking power.
- Heat oil in a large skillet. Form potato mixture into patties (use about 1/3 cup each). Fry in batches until golden brown and cooked through.
- Assembly: on your serving tray, place eight hash brown patties. On each add a few slices of avocado, followed by two slices of bacon (broken in half so they fit), one egg, garlic power, sea salt, and eight more hash brown patties for the lids. Sprinkle with fresh chives.
